Fund-raiser for B.B. King's Employee

Posted By on Tue, Mar 6, 2012 at 3:12 PM

Gerald Jones, a long-time server at B.B. King's Blues Club, is battling stage 4 T-cell lymphoma, and his employer is hoping to raise a little cash to help cover his medical expenses.

From March 7th through the 10th, patrons can leave donations in one of several buckets placed on the stage, at the three bars, and at the front door. Customers can also add a donation to their tab when dining or drinking. Money raised will help pay for Jones' chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.
